Dear Memory, is a collection of three concurrent exhibitions featuring Aj Cooke, Michele Leclaire, and Lauren Scavo-Fulk, which explores nostalgia through different forms.
Cooke’s mixed media investigations start with childhood photographs and analyze them using the language of design. Leclaire, also using old family photographs as a starting point of her paintings, uses color and paint to erode memories through the process of working to create new memories, emotional experiences, and to explore the imaginations of childhood. Scavo-Fulk’s drawings focus on landscape as universal and personal, intertwined in both individual lives and collective histories.
While each starts within a place of personal experience, each attains a moment of the universal experience.
